Check out our new charts and a slight revamp of how we report sales.

We've been telling you for some time that Inside EVs will have improved charts as part of the redesign. They've finally arrived and we're very excited to share them with you.

Additionally, not being able to provide you with timely charts has been an issue over the last several months due to automakers refusing to offer the sales information or not reporting on a monthly basis, whatsoever.

We've found that our estimates over the last few months have been very close to reality once official sales information came in. So, instead of making you wait, we're going to offer as many of those estimates as possible (designated in the chart by an asterisk next to the model) over the course of the first few EV sales reporting days. Then, when official monthly sales numbers come in, we will update the chart, remove the asterisk, and republish the report card.

For years, we've been providing the same information in two places. We have our "fixed" scorecard, which contains all historical graphs and charts. Every month we update it with new recap text and model recaps. At the same time, we publish the exact same recaps in our monthly report card, which comes in the form of a current article on our homepage.

Rather than providing the same information in two places, our new scorecard will simply include the data you're looking for in the form of charts and graphs. For the monthly recap, questions coming into each month, and model recaps, you'll want to reference our current month's report card. Fortunately, we're providing a new archive to every monthly report card we've ever published. You'll be able to access this via a link in the fixed scorecard.

Hopefully, you'll love the new charts as much as we do. They're much cleaner, easier to read, and especially helpful when you're trying to view the data on a mobile device. Also, we believe that the new streamlined format will be much more user-friendly due to its lack of redundancy. It will also assure that you can find whatever you need quickly and efficiently.

Now, we'll apologize for the long-winded explanation and give you an opportunity to see the new scorecard below. Thanks as always for your continued support!
